This social event is a collaboration between SpaceGen United (SGU) and the International Space University’s online Interactive Space Program (ISP).
The event will begin with a speed networking session where we will have different breakout rooms online for SGU delegates to network with each other and the ISP participants. Attendees in each breakout room will be randomly moved around every 10 minutes, just like in a speed networking session.
The speed networking will be followed by a trivia session where participants within the smaller breakout groups will form teams and work together to answer space themed questions.
SGU Fitness Challenge on Strava
When: Throughout SGU!
Platform: Strava – click this link to join!
A space mission only succeeds if the team moves forward together, so, we set up a challenge for you during your time at SGU through the Strava fitness app . Strava is free to download and is a very useful app to record your physical activities via GPS when you run, ride, swim, hike, and more! It even records going for a walk. Together, we want to travel a target distance, which will be tracked through Strava.
Until the end of SGU, we hope to reach 2,500 km, which is the distance between us and medium earth orbit (MEO) !
First, click the link to join our Strava club. As soon as you are in the club, every distance you will make through the app will count for the global club distance.
